DTAH is leading a multi-discipline team in a planning study for the historically significant First Parliament site in downtown Toronto. Located on the original Lake Ontario shoreline and in the former Town of York, the site played a key role in the governance of Upper Canada, the beginnings of a united Canada, and the growth of Toronto into an industrial, commercial and cultural focus. Following decades of demolition, the area has witnessed a rebirth as a mixed-use community.The project will examine how the site can best be developed in order to tell important stories from its history and serve related community purposes.
On February 6, 2018 the City of Toronto will host a public lecture on the project at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse. For more information on the project and how you can get involved, please visit firstparliament.ca
